our kale experience this year is a good example that gardening is also a permanent try and error. while the kale in our neighbors garden is overwhelming, ours just made the first shoots in autumn and fell into a deep, deep hibernation immediately afterwords.

it really made me sad, as i strictly followed the instructions on the seed package, we had no invasion of snails, an incredible mild winter and everything was fine, as far as i could see. but i am afraid that end of august was simply to late for our climate and region to put out the seeds. this year i will be earlier and i will ask the neighbor …

but even having a poor harvest does not mean you have to through it away. i discovered a really fantastic recipe for a kale pesto which changed our failure in a real winning story.
